A rare, lovely and practical lady's fashion accessory, a fan with, printed on each side, a finely engraved map divided into north and south England and Wales. In a surprisingly good state of preservation this elegant Georgian cartefact details the roads and the towns' distances from London. Figured and flower bedecked cartouches adorn the title-pieces on each side, and also the numbered panels identifying each county.
